db: cache packages (ref #49) If /etc/apk/cache is a symlink to directory, a copy of all installed packages is stored there, and the index of remote repositories will be there instead of /var/lib/apk. This enables to reconstruct running system during boot. Left as todo: remove cached copy when the package is removed, and additional apk applet to download missing packages to cache and/or remove extra items.

cache: use changeset to figure out downloadables that way we get the same result as the 'apk add world' at boot time; it might differ from currently installed set (ref #49).
